I just had to share this wonderful essay from Atlas Obscura, one of my new favorite resources. Keeping visual journals is becoming ever more popular in art therapy circles and with those looking for ways to live a more thoughtful life. The “Zilbadone” invented by Venetian merchants is probably the original visual journal; Leonardo’s Notebooks the most famous ones. Whether you keep a visual journal or not, enjoy this journey into the history of a very useful practice.
Read…Reflect…Keep A Visual Journal…Share!
“After their invention by Venetian merchants, forms of these books were kept by everyone from H.P. Lovecraft to Thomas Jefferson.”
